You're Okay

listen to this, it will most assuredly make you cry.
Although these days, my own reaction is nothing to go by. 

This last week has been a hard kind of week.
The kind of week where it is difficult to just get out of bed in the morning.

The kind of week where it seems my body is producing a surplus of un-commissioned tears that sit patiently back behind my eyelids somewhere simply waiting to escape, teetering on the very edge of my eyelashes so I have to blink really fast and really often to push them back down.

They are suppressed like this for hours, and then they revolt, overflowing quite suddenly in response to inconsiquential little things, like commercials for life insurance or dog food (or this particular video - especially at the end).

Hence the past couple days have also found me guilty of excess over analyzing, gazing out of windows, feeling sorry for myself, and beginning but never finishing dozens of tasks/projects.

I figure just getting through the day is accomplishment enough.
Plus, on the upside, the weekend is now in sight.
Here's to a better day and a better week...

Also, on the happier side of things, today is groundhogs day.
I just discovered it and don't know quite what to do with this fact, or how to commemorate today. 
I feel as though I should probably go rent this movie, bundle up with soup & blankets and enjoy the winter that isn't very wintery at all this year.


  1. Oh Leah. I wish you would never feel this way. It's no fun, no fun at all. Here is a cyber hug and know that I'm thinking of you. And as much as I'd hate to admit it, I've had a bad case of the blues for a couple weeks now.

  2. I am not pleased. I don't want a sad Leah. I need to come be there and hug you and we can stay up until wee hours of the morning talking and crying together. Those are the best times. I love you so much, and am so freaking (can I say that when I'm trying to be nice??) grateful to have you in my life. Also, if you ever get sad, just think of Amanda Bynes. I'm positive it will brighten your mood... Love you. BFF.

  3. Leah you are such a beautiful person. I look up to you so much. Your comment on my blog the other day made me feel sooo happy. thank you for being such a sincere wonderful person.

  4. Sorry you are feeling sad! Sending love your way.

  5. wait, I just left a comment and now I don't see it... do you have a comment moderator on, or did I totally screw something up?

  6. dang it leah! Apparently it just vanished, son of a.... I guess I'll write it again. Here is what I said:

    I've been feeling the same way lately. In fact, I'm quite certain that Taylor was ready to have me committed to the loony bin the other day. Maybe we should get some steamed milk and be sad together, where we would most assuredly not be sad because we would be laughing about how ridiculously emotional we were being. Should we plan something fun to do since it is friday night (and to commemorate Groundhog's Day of course)? Would you like to come play settlers at our house tonight, or go to dinner or something?

  7. I'm sorry you have had a rough week. The kids and I completely adore you. Hope things get a little better. Lots of love, from a friend.

  8. I hope things have started to look up. I want you to know that I adore you. My biggest regret of our friendship is not trying to become more like you when we served together.

    Might it make you feel better to picture yourself as a childvdelivering cucumbers to all of your neighbors? Or maybe to dancing around like a soldier to Little Drummer Boy?

    Te iuebesc!


  9. A girl couldn't feel luckier or more loved after all your set comments, thanks guys!


Tell me what you think about that...
